I have the rough recording ready to go and will post it in a day or two.
I like to "preach" to myself before I ever ask anyone to do the same.


Human Kindness


VERSE

Patience is a virtue
That hides inside a drawer
Sitting in my room
Something I ignore

Indifference lays beside me
While I try to sleep
Get up in the morning
It always follows me

CHORUS

I need to try some Human Kindness
Got to give it all Iíve got
I owe it to myself
And everybody else
Oh Human Kindness

I need to try some Human Kindness
Got to give it all Iíve got

VERSE

When tragedy strikes others
I hide in my cave
Crouching in the dark
Why be so afraid?

Others need my help
When they are all alone
I must stop wasting time
And leave the safety of my home

CHORUS

I need to try some Human Kindness
Got to give it all Iíve got
I owe it to myself
And everybody else
Oh Human Kindness

I need to try some Human Kindness
Got to give it all Iíve got


Bridge or Verse change up

Oh Human Kindness
Come on out
I know you there
Show the world
That you care

Hi Jane,

I think this is very good. It made me think of "Easy To Be Hard" --but that song asks questions like "how can people be so heartless" and your lyric is more inward directed and brave that way and doubles as a beautifully writ self-affirmation and is really nothing like the Three Dog Night hit..

--and thanks for this. It was just what I needed to feel a little braver. smile

Mike

Hi Mike,

Thanks for the nice things you said about the lyric - I work customer service (sometimes not so nice, some angry and some violent at times) so I have to remind myself constantly to be kind no matter what they say or do to me - not "just because" they are paying me to.

What very very beautiful lyrics Jane.
And the sentiments are spot on for so many.

God Bless to all

I like this. It has a great hook, and because it is inward-focused doesn't come across as preachy.
The only thing I'd change is the first word. "Patience" really doesn't have much to do with the message.
I would open with:

Quote
Kindness is a virtue.


..or not if you don't agree smile
Good work
Paul

Hi Roy

Glad you liked my lyrics. Thanks for the help on the bridge.

Hi Paul

That's a thought. - I am working on the bridge also so it's in the works. Glad you like it.
